Roseanne’s Ex-Husband: I’m Working With Michael Cohen To Take Down Trump

​On Thursday, comedian Tom Arnold, the ex-husband of recently fired Trump fan Roseanne Barr, tweeted a teaser photo of himself and Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s embattled former personal lawyer. “I Love New York,” Arnold wrote in a post retweeted by Cohen without comment.

In some follow-up exchanges with his fans, Arnold said that he had something in the works that would result in Trump resigning from the presidency and suggested that Cohen might play a key role.

In response to Cohen’s retweet of his photo with Arnold, NBC News reached out to the lawyer, who directed them to Arnold, who was more than happy to fill them in.

Arnold told NBC that his interaction with Cohen was part of his current project for Vice News, “The Hunt for the Trump Tapes,” which is designed to take down Trump.

“This dude has all the tapes — this dude has everything,” Arnold told NBC. “I say to Michael, ‘Guess what? We’re taking Trump down together, and he’s so tired he’s like, ‘OK,’ and his wife is like, ‘OK, f*** Trump.'”

While he admitted that tweeting out the photo was “indiscreet,” Arnold said that after all Cohen “sacrificed” for his former boss, for Trump to act “like I don’t even know who he is” hasn’t gone unnoticed by Cohen.

Vice announced back in May that its anti-Trump show (promo below) will draw on Arnold’s “high-profile network of celebrity friends, entertainment executives, and crew members he’s met over more than 35 years in showbiz to dig for evidence on Trump’s most incriminating moments—and, being a comedian and all, he’ll have a little fun along the way.”

“He’ll be backed up by a handful of experienced journalists, and — aside from trying to uncover the tapes themselves — he’ll look into the companies and tycoons who have allegedly fought to keep the damning recordings a secret,” the press release reads.

UPDATE: After Arnold’s wild appearance on CNN on Friday, Cohen shot down the comedian’s headline-grabbing claims:
